Concern over the accurate evaluation of QoS requirements has been one of driving forces in the
development of QoS management architectures. This paper presents an architectural approach to QoS evaluation
and admission control, based on the modelling of both system behaviour and QoS requirements. Two aspects are
considered. The first refers to QoS management, and to a component-based architecture for QoS evaluation. The
second illustrates the approach with the help of a case study based on a Personal Area Network. The proposed
approach is model-based and makes use of models representing both behaviour and QoS aspects of the system via
Timed Automata. The compatibility of the mechanism with architectures, which promote QoS management in its
own right, such as ITSUMO, is also highlighted
